8:48 am
great area especially pennsylvania ohio and florida. pennsylvania seems again present obama is corner >> i think all the polls will be tightening up. and the case of pennsylvania the numbers still are not looking really good for romney. >> lot of my left over and a lot of ads to pull because a hurricane. you can only put so many ads. john mccain did the same thing with sarah palin at the end of the last campaign. at a sort of the campaign is that do that are in a little bit of desperation of. there can expand that because they're looking for something to get something extra. >> it does seem a lot more difficult for met romney to reach to 70 than it does for present obama. >> if you look at the delegate totals present obama needs 34 more out of
8:49 am
the 85 they're out there. that basically means at the as ohio and wisconsin all he basically needs it is if you won virginia a would be over. he basically needs 10 more delegates. that accommodation of colorado + one or i a lot and nevada. that equals the magic to 70. romney has a much higher bar to clear. he basically has to almost round the table of the swing states. florida colorado early budding is turning his way he has some good markers but without ohio and without wisconsin it becomes a very tough road for him. this will all be about get out and vote for the last two days. >> house is looking for proposition 30? -- how is it t >> you have to look at 32 is
8:50 am
the anti-union initiative. you cannot isolate the two. the reason i say that is because the amount of money divided between those two campaigns a summer around hundred and $50 million being spent between the two campaigns. yes sir no on either side. prop 30 i think that. it is a depends on the democratic turnout. if the people but no on 32 which is the house will be primarily supportive of this. that has a chance. turnout candy and exit to route 3 points but it is still went to be one of those nail biters when they start turning in the absentees. 32 is interesting because if you look at it on its face those kind of
8:51 am
things easily would never have a chance in california. especially if the democrats and unions all get together to start working on it. yet to ask yourself why is it on the ballot? ec two things happening all the union money is going to defeat it all the union personnel are going to defeat it. what does that mean? they can't be used anywhere else. it can't be in that that a cat in colorado that money is not is a very smart play to pin down california's resources. >> it's interesting you brought this whole idea of propositions. it's interesting that the voters get to choose and decide on things that the legislator would do in other states. is this so the idea for california? >> basically the
8:52 am
they said wait a minute people may voice too. -- need a voice when you look at the one about driver insurance, also tried to figure out what the heck that meant. if you look of the death penalty won the three strikes the 37 which is genetic food issue is very complicated and people say that the legislature should draft that. >> he brought up 37 sold iron that one out for me? they want have meet label genetically modified stuff i'm not even sure it is that organic food or franken food? >> the campaign against it is doing a very good job of
8:53 am
making those questions. any proposition or there is uncertainty that answer is always gonna be no. they spent months and $40 million and a very good job of getting people and nobel prize winners who ever to say it's as good this is congested that. the question is how we define genetic engineering? someone who sits in the backyard and splices this thing and creates something like a plot. is that genetic engineering? >> you're saying if i go to the ball and i'm confused just vote no? >> the titles sort of make it and they sound good to have a chance of making it through. who ever >> who ever thought of
